Mavic’s new shoe comes with a removable bootie, changing the way you see comfort and lightness in your footwear. We don’t mind if we do.
Inspired by ski boots, Mavic’s Comete (‘comet’, in French) Ultimate road shoe twins a feather- light full- carbon outer shell with a removable material bootie that houses your foot. The design removes the need for an internal mounting insole, reducing the Comete’s stake height to 4.5mm, while increasing stiffness and reducing weight to 240g a shoe.
Mavic’s Ergo Dials ensure a stable, secure fit, while anti-friction material on the bootie’s underside eliminates any movement between it and the outer shell. The Comete takes indulgence to the extreme – but for some, you can’t put a price on supreme comfort and maximum power transfer. MAVIC COMETE ULTIMATE ± R16 000 DRAGONS. CO. ZA
